King of Cups is a very stoic card that speaks of someone who is deeply feeling and emotive but doesn’t express or show those emotions outwardly. This can lead to a buildup of repressed emotions that can cause stress-related or emotionally fueled illnesses.
If you struggle a lot with aches, pains, headaches, anxiety etc. you will benefit from a physical outlet for your emotions. Take up a sport or activity that really makes you sweat and is exhilarating. If you are frequently tired it is due to inertia and gaining energy requires exerting energy.
King of Cups has a natural tendency to repress emotion which can stifle creativity and create anxiety. Kings are hard working, responsible people who often sacrifice their own emotional needs to meet the needs of others.
Over time, this can lead to feelings of emptiness and lack of fulfillment. The best leaders are those who ensure their own needs are met first, allowing that abundance to overflow to others. Emotionally starved people cannot provide what they do not have within themselves without eventual consequences to their health and well-being.
King of Cups speaks of connecting with our higher self and establishing a direct connection with Spirit for help with challenges. This King tends to feel he has to solve every problem on his own. If you set aside the notion that answers only come from struggle and striving; you will open up to the still small voice of your higher self. This is the quiet strength and wisdom that can help steer you more clearly in the proper direction.
